Results 1–20 of 239 for speaker:Craig Tracey

Bedford Prison (13 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: In general, the use of body cameras by police forces has produced very positive results. Will my hon. Friend update the House on what progress is being made in rolling them out across the prison estate?

High Speed 2 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. I, too, voted against HS2, as I am sure he is aware, because we have probably the most affected constituencies in the country, given phases 1 and 2. If HS2 were to be scrapped, as he suggests, with potential savings of £50 billion, is he aware of the great British transport competition, which I recently launched in conjunction with...

High Speed 2 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: I give credit to the Minister, whom I have found extremely helpful in dealing with compensation claims. However, HS2 Ltd is spending more money on consultants to squeeze people down on price than it actually saves by doing so. It is a false economy.

High Speed 2 — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: Has my hon. Friend found, as I have, that getting north to south is not what our constituents want? What they want is to be able to get from villages into towns, and from towns into cities.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority (11 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: The Minister mentioned the reforms of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, but is it not right that, in the two years following those reforms, insurers passed on £1.1 billion of savings, and that average premiums dropped by £50?

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Damages for whiplash injuries (11 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: I spent 20-odd years on the frontline dealing with these types of claims and acting on behalf of the client rather than the insurance company. For genuinely injured people, we found that financial compensation was a minor consideration in the overall claim. They wanted to feel better and get put right. Is it not right that insurance companies should focus on rehabilitation, treatment and...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Damages for whiplash injuries (11 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: Does the hon. Lady accept that the figure of 0.17% relates to all motor claims, not just those relating to personal injury?

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (11 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: Further to that point of order, Mr Stringer. I declare an interest as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on insurance and financial services, and as a former insurance broker.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: “Whiplash injury” etc (11 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: I just do not see any reason why someone who drives as part of their employment should recover a different sum to somebody else—one of our constituents, for example—who is driving in the normal daily course of their life, because they can still claim loss of earnings. The Bill does not change that, so they can still be compensated if they lose money as a result of being unable to work.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: UK Tourism (6 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: What steps he is taking to support tourism throughout the UK.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: UK Tourism (6 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: May I also welcome my right hon. and learned Friend to his place? As a fellow Warwickshire MP, he is obviously very aware of the draw that our local area brings. Unfortunately, many miss the opportunity to see the north of the county and the hidden gems up there, such as Middleton hall, our historic towns and the beautiful rural countryside, instead concentrating more on the south of the...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: Let me begin by declaring an interest, in my role as chair of the all-party parliamentary group for insurance and financial services. Before my election in 2015, I also spent more than 20 years working as an insurance broker, so I have had a lot of experience of dealing, in the front line, with claims such as those that we are discussing this evening. I think it important for Members to...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Craig Tracey: I am sorry, but given the time constraint and the fact that many other Members want to speak, I will crack on. During my latter years as a broker, I saw the attitude change. Exaggerated claims were often seen as a “victimless crime”, and as being okay, because the insurance industry would pick up the tab. Although the amounts of compensation paid for soft-tissue claims are...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (17 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: What steps he is taking to support growth in the small business sector.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (17 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: Thirty three jobs have been created and supported in my constituency through the small business loans platform, Funding Circle. What more can we do to encourage small businesses, particularly those that are female-owned, to look at wider ranges of finance options to help them to grow?

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield) on progressing this Bill so well. As my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon South (Chris Philp) mentions, a lot has been said about making calls, but I think the point he is making is that, with rapidly advancing technology, the problem is much broader because it is about access to such things as the internet and...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Horsham (Jeremy Quin). I echo many of the points that have been raised by colleagues today and in the debate three weeks ago, at which I was present but unfortunately did not get the opportunity to speak. I congratulate the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) on the work he has done and the success he has had in gaining support...

Amesbury Incident (5 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: Obviously, this situation is distressing and it is being monitored by many of our constituents all around the country. Will my right hon. Friend reassure the House that the incident is being treated with the utmost seriousness and that the Government are being regularly updated on developments?

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: Regardless of our background, upbringing, gender or religion, we should all have the same opportunities. Hard work and ambition should be the defining factors in social mobility, so I am encouraged by the Government’s commitment to a world-class education for everyone and by the introduction of a new national funding formula that gives every local authority more money for every pupil in...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Craig Tracey: I have not seen the report that the hon. Lady has mentioned, but in my own constituency standards and exam results have been improving. From my own personal experience, that is happening on the ground. I will come back to that in a minute. What is happening is helping ensure that every child will receive a good education and the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Locally in North...
